My First Day by Robin Page

This picture book starts with humans who don't do much on their first day of life but then moves on to other animals.  Unlike humans, many other animals are quite active on their first day.  For example, a wood duck jumps right out of the nest and begins swimming after its mother.  And a Darwin frog emerges from its father's mouth where it has been growing.  Each page gives a short explanation of the first day for some familiar and several totally unfamiliar animals.  More information about each animal is provided at the back of the book for further exploration.
